Features

Patented Dual Highlighting  – Kurzweil 3000’s patented dual highlighting of on screen text improves students’ reading performance by highlighting a sentence, line or phrase in one color and each word in another color as it is read aloud.

Quick Access to Reference Lookup Tools –  One-click access to word support, including recursive dictionaries, synonyms, syllables and word spelling helps students with decoding and keeps them actively reading when they reach passages they would otherwise have difficulty comprehending.

Use Bubble Notes for Powerful Instructional Support –  Teachers can embed Bubble Notes containing questions and instructions to assigned reading to help students stay on task and support reading comprehension.

Powerful Study Skills  – Students can improve their reading comprehension and retention with tools such as text highlighting, annotations, Bubble Notes, voice notes, bookmarks and extraction of outlines or word lists.

Flexible Writing Tools –  As students type, they can use the check-spelling-while-typing and speak-while-typing features to quickly recognize and correct spelling mistakes. The audible spell checker and comprehensive Word Prediction feature further assist students with writing and editing reports, essays and papers independently.

Read the Web Using Mozilla Firefox  – Kurzweil 3000 enhances audible and visual access to web pages with Mozilla Firefox, opening up the resources of the Internet to all students, while providing the same reading and reference features that users enjoy within Kurzweil 3000.
